Magnetic Slime Is The Most Fun Thing You Didn’t Know You Needed

When I was super little, I always loved playing with magnets and magnetic stuff. It was always so cool to me how I didn’t have to touch anything but I could pull things wherever I wanted them.

Nowadays, people play with slime a lot. Slime’s stretching and pulling with a little bit of stick is plenty of fun on its own, but once you make it magnetic? It’s addicting.


This is my favorite slime recipe yet. I could play with this stuff all day, and it’s super easy to make. Give the recipe below a try yourself, and you’ll be just as addicted as I am in no time.

What you’ll need:

  • School glue
  • Water
  • Borax or Liquid Starch
  • Iron Oxides or Iron Filings

How you do it:

  • Pour a bottle of school glue into a bowl. Fill the bottle with water, shake it to remove excess glue, then pour that in the bowl with the glue.
  • Either mix a tablespoon of Borax with water until it dissolves, and pour it in, or pour in your liquid starch. Pour a bit at a time and stir until it pulls away.
  • Once the slime forms completely, knead in your iron bits, making sure there are no pockets of iron in the slime and mixing it in completely.

Trust me, you’re going to love this slime. Just be warned that if you keep it, it might turn brown because the iron rusts. This slime is best kept for a short amount of time.

What’s your favorite kind of slime?
